Drenched 5K

They don't call it HOT-lanta for nothing! Summer time in this marvelous city is amazing, but just like any large city in the south, summer can bring on some serious heat waves. So, the burning question is what to do when summer is at its hottest and you still want something fun, fresh and fit? You sign up for the Drenched 5K on August 17 th . Imagine a 5K, but wetter. At the Drenched 5K, you will be 100% soaked by the time you reach the finish line, and we aren't talking about sweat. Participants will run through "hot" zones and "drenched" zones where you may encounter misting tunnels, sprinkler zones, foam and bubbles and even fire hose zones manned by real firefighters! You are encouraged to drench other participants with your own water weapon and fill up at one of the many filling stations along the way.

Don't think running is fun and you would rather die than even think about it? No worries! Sign up as a "water sniper" and soak runners free of charge! Immediately following the race will be a post-race festival full of plenty of great music, cool refreshments and a huge water balloon fight. Find out more information at www.rundrenched.com .
